Beverley Beck Canal flows from the River Hull near to the centre of the historic town of Beverley.
It is secured by lock gates. There is a small private boatyard that a various number of boats are kept.
It contains a dry dock and two slipways. The last remaining Hull sidewinder trawler Artic Coasair was built nearby at Beverley shipyard, and now is a tourist attraction on the River Hull at the rear of High Street.
People on the boatyard regularly repair and maintain their boats within the dry dock. From the Beck you can travel down the River Hull and Humber and out into the North Sea. Alternately you can sail towards Tickton and North Frodingham. There are plenty of wildlife and the routes out of the beck are very scenic with plenty of wildlife in unspoilt countryside.
